First up is the Easter Egg Topiary. I really didn't have anything to go off of. I was just trying to use stuff that either I had on hand, or wouldn't cost an arm and a leg to purchase. Now, I'm all about convenience. I know that a lot of you have easy access to Hobby Lobby, Micheal's, etc. I don't. My nearest Hobby Lobby is about 25 minutes away or so (not that far) BUT I am a stay at home Mom. I always have kids with me....I learned my lesson the hard way.
Hobby Lobby is NOT a place for curious little boys. I never realized how many breakable items they had until I brought my kids. WOW. I think the whole time I was in there, I was a frantic mess. I think Wyatt ran loose through the store and I found him in the floral section. Anyways, y'all get the idea. So, while at Wal-Mart (my mini vacation site...sometimes I sit in the patio chairs in the outdoor section and pretend I'm on a private beach in Hawaii), I visited the craft section. Y'all, let me tell ya, Wal-Mart's gettin' it together with their craft section. I found these cute little pre-made topiaries. I knew immediately that I could do something with them!
Here we go:
I got the pots from the dollar store. Don't forget to take the stickers off!
Next, I painted and distressed them with chalk paint- Annie Sloan Versailles. No prep work required. Just start painting!
Then get your cute little topiary from Wally World
And start hot gluing Easter eggs on it. I chose to go in a diagonal with my eggs, but you can place them however you want. Also, I bought plastic Easter eggs. You can totally buy the more expensive ones, but I was being cheap. After you hot glue all the eggs on, fill in the spaces with Spanish moss (I bought mine at the dollar store). Sorry I don't have a picture of this. It's not hard, just grab a bunch of moss, then hot glue it on. Easy as that.
Then you're done! Isn't it adorable?! For the price, you can't beat it. Also, I chose to hot glue on some burlap ribbon. You don't have to do this. I had some on hand, so I used it.
